Can Guinea Pigs Eat Brussels Sprouts?

Brussels Sprouts look like tiny cabbages, and are actually a type of wild cabbage. Like other types of cabbage, they should only be fed to us occasionally and in small amounts because they cause gas. We had one Brussels Sprout for the two of us, and that was all we had for an entire week.

This is all we get for the week.

Chomp! It has a crunch to it.
Hey! Human! You can let go now. I might not be able to slice up veggies, but I know how to eat them on my own!

Buffy, don't eat too much! I've got to share a cage with you.
This is yet another food that we were enthusiastic to try, but did not come close to finishing. Because of the gas issue and the fact we got so bored of it so quickly, we're only giving Brussels Sprouts 2/5 stars.

(We should note that the humans, who normally like Brussels Sprouts, found this particular batch to be especially bitter and bad-tasting. At some point in the future, we may give Brussels Sprouts another chance.)
